Genious Barcelonian blogger From Barcelona (Jeremy) captured the autumn beauty of the city so perfectly, i just had to quote him (for the full post check out his blog!)…. Thanks!!!!


“October’s coming to an end and I’m a little sad to see it go. It tends to be my favorite month in the city. The heat and humidity of summer is gone and the rains of September have finished, for the most part. The weather’s perfect: warm enough to still sit out side during the day but usually with a breeze; at night a light jacket or a sweater suffices. There’s this lazy haze in the air and it just seems everything’s moving at half speed from the people to the cars to your brain. Walking around the different neighborhoods, you see the way the sun hits the buildings and brings out all the different shades of colors, giving them an almost painting-like feel.”

Enjoy some authentic Spanish guitar music from Emilio de Benito (the man responsible for the beautiful guitar solo in Vicky Cristina Barcelona), brightens up even the greyest Thursdays! Let it lift you up and fly away!!!

In Barcelona and Want to See Live Performances of the Spanish Guitar?

With winter knocking on the door i can’t help but get excited for the skiing/snowboarding season ahead of us! One of the major attraction of Barcelona to me has always been that while you’re right on the beach you can be in the mountains, ski-ready in a matter of hours, you can even do daytrips if you want to!

After some research i came up with the following list of ski resorts to check out:

Within 2 hours of Barcelona

– La Molina

– Masella

– Port del Comte

Vall de Nuria

Within 2,5 hours of Barcelona  (all in Andorra)


– Encamp

Ordino – Arcalis 

Pal – Arinsal

– Pas de la Casa

Soldeu el Tarter

Within 3 hours of Barcelona

– La Massana (Andorra)

Have you tried any of them? Any (other) recommendations???

If you’re in the city don’t miss the Barcelona Snow show on the 7th of November!

One of my new year resolution for 2010 is: learn to snowboard!

(oh i did have one attempt years ago, which ended with me being alone in a forest covered with snow, waiting for the rescue team… rental snowboard lost forever… well, that’s a story for another day 🙂
